Sorry no, buy I'm curious what you use it for. My mother and her brother were given a weekly dose "for all what ails ye" way :mrgreen: back in the 30s and still grimaces at the thought of the taste. :mrgreen:

That looks close ... there are several mentions of Zait (or zayt) Al-Kharwa on Google. Castor oil (externally applied!) and a hot water bottle for backache, one site recommends. Might try that!

I was given a weekly dose back in....well it wasn't the thirty's....my mother had an obsession with bowel movements. Don't know what friends want it for didn't ask. Some things you just don't want to know.
